Luke Shaw has shed some light on why his form for Manchester United has not been great this season.
The left-back enjoyed a superb Euro 2020 last summer, and was expected to continue that form into the current campaign for United.
However, Shaw has since looked pretty poor for the Red Devils, and even lost his place to Alex Telles for a stretch after Ralf Rangnick took over.
Now, though, the stopper has suggested that a lack of feeling wanted and enjoying his football at club level have been preventing him from performing at his best:
“It’s always important to feel like you’re wanted and I think especially here I always feel that," Shaw told Sky Sports after England's 2-1 victory over Switzerland on Saturday.
"I’m not saying I don’t at United but here, the way things are, I feel wanted and I enjoy my football. And I think a big part of football is the enjoyment.
“Of course it’s hard to enjoy when we’re losing and we’re not playing well at club level and we have to face that. "This season it’s not been good enough at all so it’s hard to enjoy. We know we’ve got a lot to improve at the club but obviously right now we’re here with England so I’m focusing on that."
Shaw on target
Like a number of England stars, Shaw continues to shine for the Three Lions despite his struggles at club level.
And the full-back was once again looking sharp for his country at the weekend, netting an equaliser as England came from 1-0 down to beat Switzerland 2-1:
